The American Composites Manufacturing Association (ACMA) recently announced it is soliciting submissions for the Awards for Composites Excellence (ACE). These innovative products and processes will be showcased and announced during COMPOSITES 2013, to be held January 29-31, 2013, in Orlando, Fla.
“ACE awards winners represent the most creative and innovative products and processes in the composites industry,” said Lori Luchak, ACMA president. “The awards recognize superiority in engineering and design as well as improvements and innovation in equipment and manufacturing. The products, equipment and processes that receive this distinguished recognition have significant impact within the market, as well as a proven understanding of composites.”
The ACE competition is divided into three categories: design, manufacturing and market growth. In addition to a Best in Show award, two awards are presented in each category, ranging from the Innovation in Green Technology Award for design to the Infinite Possibility Award for market growth. All categories are open to manufacturers, while academia, equipment suppliers, software developers and end-users can submit entries to specific categories.
